I presume (since this is to current@) that you are workiing with head
(FreeBSD 14).

My older laptop is also using nvidia-modest from nvidia-driver-460.84;
hardware is NVIDIA GPU Quadro K2100M (GK106GL) (on a Dell PRecision

Suspend/resume almost always works while running stable/12, tested most
recently running:

FreeBSD 12.2-STABLE #1099 stable/12-n233460-ac56cd3ba62: Tue Jul 27 03:32:24 PDT 2021  amd64 1202508 1202508

but last I checked, resume fails for stable/13 and head (I track
each of the 3 daily).

One possibly-salient difference is that I had been running with


(and still do, for stable/12), but since the VBE changes earlier
this year, I let kern.vty take the default value (which I am not
recalling at the moment) for stable/13 and head.
